Couldn’t resist these two.
I had been looking for some loose 40th uniforms and came across these

Great looking figures, very authentic... at least to my untrained eye. Great addition to your crew!

Another one returns!

Since mojo has kicked in and I’ve been looking at all things Vam I’ve discovered that Vaman is offering 10 heads reflocked for £32 an absolute bargain me thinks but wait, what’s the quality like?
So I selected a volunteer from the sick bay that are waiting for the attention Of Dr Sparklebudgie.
He was duly sent of to try the complete restring, reflock and new hands deal for a bargain £15.99.
In just under two weeks he has returned

A little too much flock around the mouth needed a little tweak

I personally think the elastic is a little thin

New troops at SBHQ DD5-E7-B47-627-A-4-F48-8738-239073-AD5385

I know I’m a bit over critical (well it’s Dr SB’s trade!)
But it is fantastic value for those that don’t want or even have the inclination to fix up old figures.
So I would recommend him  Very Happy

Fantastic lookin reflocked fig with new uniform! Ready for action!

That was quite a team with an impressive fleet of vehicles! That pic alone is enough to rejuvenate the VAM/JOE mojo!

They look so cool with those shoulder holsters! I wonder if I could look that cool if I got myself an orange jumpsuit and a shoulder holster?

Probably not. It's all about the life-like hair and beard. My hair doesn't cut it anymore, and my attempts at a beard have always left me looking like a bum rather than a man of action.
